    Default Formula for windy bub

    Hi ladies,
    New to this forum :-)

    I have a 14 week bub, I'm breast feeding but when I went to the health centre on Monday they said that she's gaining heaps but they want to see more,so they want me to try topping her up with formula every second feed but formula gives her shocking wind.

    Spoke to a karicare rep she suggested the karicare aptamil + HA which is what I'm using but it still gives her wind, I know there is a new one out called karicare, aptamil "allerpro" one rep said this would be good , another said it wouldn't, make up your mind? They both work for the same company. Lol.

    What does everyone out there use?

    Thanks heaps.

    Hey I haven't had any experience personally but I've read in a few threads before that Bellamy's Organic is supposed to be really good
    I'm sure someone else will come along soon with first hand experience for you.

    I personally wouldn't use an HA formula without good reason. It doesn't sound like your bub is allergy prone or anything?

    We use Bellamy Organic an its great but younger bubs do suffer from wind regardless sometimes.

    We used infants friend occasionally and made sure we winded him after every feed and also did tummy runs and bicycle legs when necessary.

    After about 3/4 months wind wasn't an issue anymore.

    My bub is FF so I'm no expert but if your bub is gaining weight well it seems odd for the doctor to suggest giving formula too... Them wanting more weight gain probably wouldn't be a good enough reason for me unless there was actually a weight gain issue.

    Also remember that BF babies have different growth charts than FF ones.

    And not every bub needs to be at the 50th %ile or above!

    Right so i might try a different formula then.

    I do burp correctly and use infacol but I just feel it makes her very farty.

    Also, she's gaining weight but they want her to gain more.


    Anyway. Only needed advise on the different formula people are using

    Thanks heaps

    Sorry - didn't mean to annoy you. As I said my bub is fully FF and has been since he was 4 weeks old so I'm not against it in any way at all!

    Only mentioned it as it is more work and more cost for you.

    Best of luck! It can take a few tries to get the formula right. Bellamy's was our third one.

    I would definitely recommend using infants friend in conjunction with whatever formula you choose, helped my son so much

    We were using Katicare Aptamil Gold for my DD but she was getting heaps of wind so we switched to Bellamys Organic. It's been soooo much better since then

    Good luck with formula, different bubs seem better on different formulas - though my babies have both been totally fine on s26.

    Are you wanting to continue bfing? I'd look at boosting supply, expressing etc if you aren't already as well as topping up if you are concerned about weight gain.
